NCAA President Mark Emmert 
NCAA President Mark Emmert  - 

This final note on the way out today, in which the president of the NCAA tries to have it both ways. Mark Emmert told a Senate panel today that college athletes ought to receive "scholarships for life."

I'm guessing he means getting the skills to succeed in life, because he went on to say that athletic scholarships ought to cover the whole cost of being in school, not just the bare bones.

He also said - and this is the having it both ways part - that he figures the current model of amateurism is working well for most people.
